Agreed . Anything form 67, would be great , but I think some of those fragmentary bits, if there really is no more , should come out, and the RT formant would have been great for that . God knows what shape those Shire tapes are in , but they still should do something with those shows .
I am enjoying the Boston 76 RT quite a bit . It is a good break from the E72, set 4 years later, and a totally different sounding band ! None of the tight energetic bite of the Europe tour, but a compensating gentleness ( love Garcia's guitar tone in 76) and beauty. Oh, and Keith is high in the mix, which is a pleasure, after having to struggle to hear what he is doing in the Europe shows . The 72 tour is one for the ages, but 76 is a "pet" year for me .

I had a very similar reaction listening to '76 after nearly two months of hard core E72 listening. However I am not sure the issue is that Keith is higher in the mix in '76. I think the more laid back approach and the lack of an organ creates more space in the mix. I have been thinking about the "low in the mix critique" regarding Keith and E72 for some time but never got around to posting about it. Perhaps it is time.
